So be sure to watch this course, and don't forget to download the included project files.
First, Alex covers the various sound sources that can be used for sound effects, from synthesis to field recording.

This course is a fantastic breath of fresh air. A very different type of course from most others on the platform. Two things I particularly love. The first is that Alex supplies all the projects, making it very engaging to follow along. In fact, it's essential that you do this, I feel; otherwise, the course might feel more like an extended lecture; but with the ability to use the project files, the course really comes to life. The second outstanding thing about this course is that Alex uses ONLY Logic plug-ins. And he doesn't just use the usual suspects either - he really uses a range of stock plug-ins. How many courses have you watched that actually use Delay Designer or the EVOC20 Filterbank, for example? Even a plug-in as hard hitting as Clip Distortion is almost never used anywhere during Logic Pro courses. Not so here. A huge range of Logic's plug-ins get their time in the sun. In fact, the stock plug-ins that are typically used in online courses - Tape Delay, Stereo Delay, Compressor - are the only ones NOT to be used at all. This is so refreshing. Thanks, Alex!
